Mano a Mano’s Center for Ecological Agriculture (CEA) provides training and tools to improve food security & nutrition for Bolivian farm families. The training at the CEA  includes everything from workshops for farmers, to tours for local students to learn more about the environment, water conservation, climate change, and other topics. (Here are pictures from another student group that visited the CEA earlier in August.)
